Google Earth Plug-in: Jeddah 2001 (OL)

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Located on the Red Sea coast, this city is the largest city in the Western Province of Saudi Arabia and its principal port in the region. Jeddah occupies an area of 560 square kilometres and stretches for 80km north to south along its coastline.

The discovery of oil deposits in Saudi Arabia in 1936 changed the face of Jeddah. Traditionally a point of entry for pilgrims on their annual Hajj, or pilgrimage, to Makkah, Jeddah became a busy commercial port after oil was discovered

With a present population of nearly 2 million, Jeddah today outshines other major Saudi Arabian cities as the country's busiest seaport, air terminal, and business and industrial center.
